End of Month – October 2011
The months are going past at high speed; I refuse to recognise that it’s actually November and therefore almost Christmas.
(We’ll ignore that fact I’m already excited about the dreaded c-word.)
I’m also looking forward to hearing the crazy customer stories from Kyna, I wonder what the nut jobs will do this year??
Recently I extended a border in the front garden. The grass remains boggy most of the year and the border that surrounds it has very few plants other than bulbs and primroses in early spring. I figured that there was very little to use up any water, added to the clay soil problems it just wasn’t helping.
So I removed some of the grass and planted various shade lovers and quite a few bulbs in the hope for year-round interest and also to add some interest to an otherwise very boring front garden.
The back garden is growing nicely, only two areas now that need working on; the Buddleja border (as always) and the upper tier where the summer house was…
No wide views of the Aster border this month, and I’m sure you’re all bored of seeing it anyway, but here’s the over-packed Aster border with the many grasses recently added and now lots of bulbs planted at the last minute just to put them somewhere…
The cherry border is looking surprisingly lush as the plants have put on growth now we’ve been having regular rain. I need to move the Tiarella next year – probably to the extended border in the front garden.
That’s it for the view this month… it’s too dark now and I can’t get photos during the week. We’ll see what’s out and about in the middle of November for GBBD; it’s also my birthday and graduation! Plenty of celebrations for me 🙂
